What is Group of 5+ ?

Group of 5+ is a collective of five professional independent English-language theatre companies seeking to share a creative and administrative space to establish a sustainable arts ecosystem. The Group of 5+ aims provide its members with a permanent and viable infrastructure-a physical space-where members can share resources, create and build community.

Who is in the Group of 5+ ?

The five dynamic theatre companies in the Group of 5+ are:

  • Imago Theatre;
  • Dulcinée Langfelder & Cie;
  • Playwrights’ Workshop Montreal;
  • Geordie Productions;
  • Talisman Theatre.

What guides the Group of 5+?

We believe a shared space and the resulting collective ecosystem will expand the boundaries of theatrical creation.

The vision for Group of 5+ is to sustain the development and presence of professional English-language theatre in the Québec and Montreal arts landscape. The collective would galvanize exchange and the sharing of resources for its members- both past and present-with an aim to strengthen the English-language minority community and expand upon the scope, inclusivity and vibrancy of Québecois theatre.

The Group of 5+ is guided by the following five principles:

  1. BEING LEADERS in the community;
  2. BUILDING a collective infrastructure;
  3. SECURING a foundation for English-language theatre in Montréal;
  4. PROMOTING exchange and cooperation between artists;
  5. EXPERIMENTING with new technologies.
